In this paper, we introduce an open queueing network with finite buffers to model a remanufacturing system. The system consists of three modules, viz., a testing module for returned products, a disposition module for non-reusable returns and a remanufacturing module. We analyze the network using the decomposition principle and the expansion methodology. The model has been shown to be very rigorous and remarkably accurate. An example is presented to illustrate the use of the model.
End of life products, Buffers
Recycling (Waste (etc.))
